A brand that has rapidly expanded throughout New Jersey during the last few years has brought their signature bubble teas to Jersey City.

Gong Cha is now serving customers out of space on the top floor of the Newport Mall near the AMC Theater. Founded in 2006 in Taiwan, the international chain runs over 1,600 stores and franchises throughout 20 different countries.

The company’s name translates to “tribute tea for the emperor,” as the brand prides itself on fresh ingredients and using the highest quality tea leaves. Among the creations served at Gong Cha is their signature milk foam drink, a creamy concoction with a whipped texture sporting a sweet and savory flavor balance.

Other drinks at Gong Cha include a variety of milk tea selections, a slush series, tea lattes, and some coffee options. Many of the store’s drinks can be blended with a customizable variety of fruits, toppings, and creative mixes.

Gong Cha’s Jersey City outpost opens at 11:30 a.m. daily and closes during the week at 8 p.m., with later hours on Friday and Saturday nights. The company runs 17 other locations throughout the Garden State, including one in nearby Hoboken at 527 Washington Street.
